Greetings from The Netherlands

Hi there!
I just received my Bobber Black a few days ago, fresh from the UK.
According to the dealer it’s the only gloss black one in the counntry (on the moment), since it’s only available in matt black in The Netherlands.
It’s my frist Triumph. My first motorcycle was a Moto Guzzi V7 II. I bought it 3 years ago right after i got my licence. A great machine to start with. But on the moment i had my first test ride with the Bobber one year ago, i fell in love with this amazing bike! And now i own one myself and can enjoy it every day...

Again gefeliciteerd with your decision, which could already have been foreseen driving a moto guzzi before (just showing Taste, good taste) your biggest problems now will be:
A) where’s the next petrol station ( roughly you only got half of tank now)
B) you have to keep track on your chain ( with the Guzzi‘s you can rely on the Cardan axle)
Have fun

A) Tiger 800 Jet Black
B) Bobber black about 9.000 km ago
C) a backpack to be used with B) if you need a toothbrush AND a fresh t-shirt.
Btw WARNING!
Please try to avoid C) as it’s going to break your back on the long run.

really nice looking Bobber, i think if i were to change my 17 bobber for a black one it would be the gloss.

Welcome.

How are you finding the seat?

And are those stock mirrors just swapped and turned downwards?
